Upon returning from nearly a week hiatus, I stopped to check Camp Perry
Beach this evening, 3 September, between 6:30 and 7:00 PM as part of our
regular shorebird survey. Almost immediately, I spotted a first-summer/
retarded second-cycle Franklin's Gull swimming in the water just off of the
beach. There was also a second cycle Lesser Black-backed Gull loafing with
Herrings on the pier itself. Between the beach and lake, I estimated at
least 6,500 Ring-billed Gulls and no fewer than 300 Herring Gulls.
